96:10 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!
The world is established, it cannot be moved.
He judges the nations fairly.”
96:13 before the Lord, for he comes!
For he comes to judge the earth!
He judges the world fairly, 1
and the nations in accordance with his justice. 2
1 tn The verbal forms in v. 13 probably describe God’s typical, characteristic behavior, though they may depict in dramatic fashion the outworking of divine judgment or anticipate a future judgment of worldwide proportions, in which case they could be translated “will judge the world.”
2 tn Heb “and the nations with his integrity.”
